RCM 2021 Violin Repertoire – Level 1


Carefully selected and curated to support teachers and students in their artistic and technical development, the Violin Series, 2021 Edition includes pieces from a diverse range of eras and styles that represent stepping stones to major violin repertoire. Each level is constructed to link repertoire selections to necessary techniques and corresponding etudes, while illustrating step-by-step connections for developing core skills. Each Repertoire book includes access to quality video and audio recordings by some of North America’s finest violinists and accompanists; both performance and accompaniment-only tracks for each Repertoire selection offer students a model for performance practice and the convenience of accompanied rehearsal at home.

Violin Repertoire 1 offers selections at various tempos that explore familiar D major/minor and A major/minor tonalities in first position, while encouraging further development of hand-frame knowledge in the keys of G major and C major across the fingerboard. Through a broad cross-section of pieces in simple and compound time, enriched piano accompaniments enhance lyricism and tone production. The pieces explore bow development and division using a variety of lengths, while also introducing hooked bows and slurs. New experiences include artificial harmonics, glissando, and double stops; duets are included to provide opportunities for in-class and recital collaboration. Featured composers include Harold Birston, Christine Donkin, Robert Fleming, Christine Gale, Terence Greaves, Ricky Hyslop, Michael Joncas, Dmitri Kabalevsky, Christopher Norton, Mary Alice Rich, Alec Rowley, and Robert Schumann.
